At Smoque N’ Bones, we are proud of both our home and our heritage. Drawing inspiration from the heart of America, we bring Southern Hospitality to our beloved city in a unique blend of styles from Memphis, Texas, Kansas, the Carolinas, and of course, Toronto.
Our commitment to authenticity is showcased in every aspect of the restaurant, starting with our classic, Southern BBQ style menu. Everything that leaves our kitchen is made from scratch with love. Our Southern Pride smoker was tailor-made for our intimate dining room in order to provide a distinctive and genuine flavor, aroma, color, & texture in all of our meats. Even the tables have a story – topped with reclaimed wood from an old house on Palmerston and lit with bunker and prison lights from WWII.

Awesome vibes at this spot. Really tasty options with plenty to try. A ideal spot for a date or to share some drinks and a bite with friends.

Overall it was good, but the back and forth with them leading up to the dinner was very confusing. I was not provided with much clarity, confusingly almost locked in to a prefix menu, and was never informed about why I had to pay a minimum amount per person. Our waitress was great, but the email correspondance prior was brutal.

Beans portion very small considering the sizes of other portions.
Baby back ribs is to die for. Amazing!
Decent coleslaw. I was not impressed by the brisket, though.
A bit pricey overall. I still think the Beach Hill Smokehouse is a better deal.

I have been here a few times before and it has never disappointed. It is a hip restaurant in a hip neighborhood with good BBQ. I I were looking for an out of this world BBQ joint and was willing to travel I would go elsewhere but smoke n bones is always a safe bet for a good time

Reunion. Great food and atmosphere. If only the manager would turn the music down a bit it would be easier to hear people talk.

The maple smoked chicken wings were underwhelming but the Brussels sprouts and cornbread was delicious. Despite the stopgap at the front door, Smoque N Bones only has high tables on the main floor and is not accessible for wheelchair users.

All I can say is amazing! I really appreciated the restaurant reaching out and convincing me to do the prix fix menu, all the options were delicious. Every one in our party was full and satisfied. The smoked wings were perhaps the best I've ever had. The cocktails were also terrific. Thanks!

Making a reservation for a group of 9 people was very easy. The head chef gave me a call and email about a suggested menu for our group rather than having individual orders and it was a great idea. Though it was busy, we always felt attended to and we had a good flow of drinks going while the food was prepared. Highly recommended for any Toronto visit.

Smoque N Bones was AMAZING. Food was incredible. Highly recommend the Mac N Cheese. I couldn't imagine anything on their menu being less than fantastic. Staff was helpful and friendly.

The food is delicious. The decor is rugged and dark but with a great rock and roll twist. I wish there was a better kids menu. My son shared with us and he loved it but the Mac and cheese could be more child friendly.

We went for Fathers day and we had a great time! The food and cocktails are outstanding. I particularly liked that we were able to brush the bbq sauce onto our meat to suit our individual tastes - barely for me and drowning for my son and husband!
Thank you for the good memories.

Sat at the “chefs counter” and the line guys did a great job keeping the food coming and the banter as well. Really engaged with us. Kept my 18 year old nephew entertained (and fed) which was huge. Food is outstanding. It is quite high volume so don’t go if you want quiet conversation. But definitely highly recommend.

I would recommend this place for take out. It was extremely loud , I couldn’t hold a proper conversation because of the noise level and the service wasn’t the greatest.

Waited over 15 minutes just to have someone take our order. After that it was another hour wait to get a 1/4 serving of beef brisket. We saw other people who were sat after us get their food well before us. Food was good, but arrived cold. Trying to flag someone down to get water was impossible, despite most of the tables being empty.
